Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening produces firmer and more youthful skin

Skin tightening is a safe non-invasive procedure that is performed through a light-based laser system that is gentle and effective.

As we age, the fibroblast, the cell responsible for producing elastin and collagen slows down in how much healthy elastin and collagen is being produced. Over time, the skin loses its luster and it starts to sag and looks dull and wrinkles and fine lines start to develop.

Skin tightening is a safe non-invasive procedure that is performed through a light-based laser system and works by gently heating up the deeper layers of your skin. Once the targeted areas are heated, the heat absorbed will stimulate the fibroblast to generate new healthy collagen and thus tighten the existing collagen.

Is Skin Tightening right for you?

1Are there any side effects?
Some clients may experience slight redness or mild swelling after a treatment, but this usually subsides within a few hours. Usually, after treatment, clients report feeling that their skin feels tighter, smoother and fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable. Depending on the initial condition of your skin prior to treatment, results may vary, but results are usually visible just after your first treatment. There is no downtime for this treatment and individuals may resume back to normal activities after treatment and may cover the area with makeup. There is some photosensitivity to this treatment, so an individual should avoid direct exposure to sunlight until fully healed and make sure that they are wearing a good sunscreen whenever outdoors.

At Dermedica, we use Cutting-Edge Laser Technology

Venus Viva™ is a highly customizable skin resurfacing device that delivers exceptional results with low downtime. Powered by NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) with SmartScan™ technology, it is a fractional radio-frequency system that allows operator control of ablation, coagulation, and resurfacing for enhanced efficacy in resolving mild to severe skin damage.
Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatments work with tiny pins that safely deliver heat (via NanoFractional Radio Frequency) through the skin’s surface. This creates tiny micro-dermal wounds, which the body naturally heals on its own. This process repairs signs of skin damage visible on the surface of the skin. Since the wounds are so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than traditional CO2 lasers, while still producing incredibly visible results.
A DiamondPolar™ applicator works to further diminish lines and wrinkles through the use of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields. which produce uniform heat under the skin’s surface. This process helps to naturally increase collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in smoother, firmer skin that looks noticeably more youthful.
Enjoy all the benefits that Venus Viva has to offer:
  • SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TONES: Unlike most other skin resurfacing treatments that are not safe for darker skin tones, Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing is safe for all ethnicities, even for darker complexions.
  • LOW TO NO DOWNTIME: Return to your daily skin care routine 24 hours after skin resurfacing treatments. There is no downtime at all for wrinkle reduction treatments.
  • QUICK TREATMENTS: Sessions last only 15-30 minutes.
